Comments This was my second trip on the Cuan Law, 2 years in a row. Dollar for dollar, I believe that it is the best deal going. 4 to 5 dives a day. You dive either before the day boats get to the sites, during their SI or after they leave - we were always the only group on a dive site. I have been diving on the Rhone both on day boats and on the Cuan, and you really do not appreciate the wreck on a day boat because you are always getting "lost" among all the other dive groups. The Cuan is also the only one to dive it at night, which should not be missed. All diving is off the boat or 16 ft. RIB's.

Captain and crew are extremely helpful and accomodating in every aspect of diving and living onboard. The food is fantastic (they ask for preferences beforehand) and cabins are spacious with insuite bathrooms and at least one window and skylight. Saloon is large with more then enough seatting. The boat also has Hobbie Cats and other water toys.

I can not say enough great things about the boat and crew. This is a vacation that you will always remember and want to repeat.
